A Beautiful Day at the Park

My toy photography buddy, Mitch came by and asked me to join him for a photo shoot. It’s been a while since we’ve done this together so I grabbed my camera and took a couple of figures with me the other day.

It’s a cold early Thursday while the sun is smiling at us as we arrived at the park. The great part was I get to spend my time with a group of 10-year old boys who got curious on what we were doing. They were playing at the park when they saw us taking photos of our figures. They asked me a lot of questions, they shared their own stories, their crushes and watched me photograph my figures. In the end, I didn’t get a nice shot because they were talking to me most of the time but I didn’t mind. I somehow enjoyed spending hours with them. They left by 12 noon because they still have school.

The wind blew so strong, that I can barely stand my figures up and I almost give up. Mitch mostly did the shoot while I enjoy the blue skies as I lay on the ground and listened to the wind. Β It’s a beautiful day to enjoy the scenery and embrace the cool breeze.

Today’s set of photos are more on back of figures, an idea I got from G+ Figure Photography community, with a dramatic twist. Of course, I also include photos that you can see their adorable face. Mayoi and Kirino are mine while the one playing the piano is Mitch’s Nendoroid Wakana Sakai.

I think, these are the ones that turned out okay.

“I am a dreamer, I am a wandering soul…”




“Best Friend”


“Music is my Escape”

I’m not familiar with the character but I love the piano.

After the shoot, we decided to eat Ramen with little Miku.

That’s all for today! Next post would be either Cu-Poche Mami Tomoe or Kotobukiya Demon Fox figure, kindly watch out for it.

Yesterday, I also got a wonderful news. I can’t announce it yet, but you’ll know it for sure this coming weeks.

Thank you for checking out! See ya!

    You have a knack for finding just the right places to shoot your figures! Hachikuji is a great figma too (Scher recently did a set with her on her blog). Looks like you had a nice day, looking forward to the next set!!

      We’re lucky to have 2 parks nearby. It’s refreshing to go outside and enjoy the scenery. It’s my first time to take photos of Mayoi, she’s really cute. Though, I forgot to bring her stand so I really had a hard time standing her up. Lol. Saw Scher’s post, really great set of Mayoi!

      Thanks Tian!

    I really like how Mayoi is balancing on the wood, however you have mastered it ^^

      Yes, it’s a nice place for picnic as well. I want to go back there soon, the weather is really good.

  3. When it comes to photography, there’s nothing like a nice day outside. Natural sunlight is the best ^^

    Sheng, you should totally watch Tari Tari, I’m sure you’ll love it.

  4. Damn great photos! πŸ™‚ Sunlight’s the best! πŸ˜€
